I had a very pleasant stay at River Lodge. My room at a cool view of the lazy river and a perfect balcony. I loved the log cabin feel in the room. The room was very clean and well appointed. I did not try any of the restaurants or go to the water park but I have been to the...

We got a special so decided to add this onto our trip to the Smoky Mountains. The kids loved it. We normally stay on the Wyndham side, but this time stayed on the hotel side. It was extremely roomy and clean in our room. The kids loved the bunk bed and murphy bed. It was close to the water park...

We have a 3 and 5 year old and they loved this waterpark! They both cried when we had to leave. The rooms are good for a weekend stay and the waterpark is perfect for elementary and younger kids. The food inside the resort is good but a little pricey. Overall we had a great stay and will most likely...

Let me start by saying, we stayed in the wyndham section which is not connected to the hotel. Our condo was amazing and very modern. 3 bedroom with plenty of space. I would look to book from an owner for a much better value as we did. We did have access to Wilderness at the Smokies amenities such as the...

From the moment I checked in, I was treated with utmost respect. The concierge even called my room the first night to see if I needed anything. I was here for a workshop and it is the best meeting place I have ever been to.

Our family stayed here and had a great time. I really don't have any major complaints. It was crowded, but I was expecting that. The rooms were very nice. They were clean, comfortable and modern. The shuttle ran right on time. The water parks were nice. Most of the area are well maintained and clean. Everything around this area is...

We will definitely be back to...

We love staying at the Wilderness at the Smokies Resort and have traveled there several times in the past. It is clean, friendly, and fun for the family. The price of the motel includes the water park which makes it a great price for families to enjoy being together. I recommend the pizza, funnel cakes, and gift shop. There are...

We had a great time. My sons are autistic, so this was a trial run to take them somewhere like this. They did great! They had a lot of fun in the indoor waterpark! The room was very nice and clean. Our nine year old had a blast. She is excited to go back again. We live in Sevier co.,...
